Signature change of AutomationElement.FromPoint() method in VS 2013 with UIAComWrapper


  • Hi,

    We migrated our project to VS 2013.  Our project has code "AutomationElement.FromPoint(System.Windows.Point point)".  We are seeing that with VS 2013 and using UIAComWrapper.dll instead of UIAutomationClient.dll, the signature has changed to "AutomationElement.FromPoint(System.Drawing.Point point)".

    Because, our projects are failing to compile.  We have a lot of impacted projects.

    We want to know if there is any generic way to address this issue.

  • Hi Rajendar,

    Because your question is more related to Automation development rather than Visual Studio testing, I moved this thread to Windows Desktop Development for Accessibility and Automation forum: for better support. Experts there should be able to provide you more professional support.

    Thank you for your understanding.

  • The UIAComWrapper project includes source, so you can update it to use WPF (System.Windows) instead of System.Drawing if you have a strong dependency on that library.
